Teaches Violin and Kindermusik
Jennifer began violin lessons at an early age and grew to become an accomplished violinist. Over the years she has played in multiple ensembles including the Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon, The Rogue Opera, The Jefferson Baroque Orchestra, local theater productions, several bands (including bluegrass, Celtic, and Christian contemporary), and her church worship team.
An experienced teacher, Jennifer loves to encourage, inspire, and share her love of music with others. She has been teaching violin over a span of 15 years, taking a long break to homeschool her three children. Now that her kids are older, she is excited to return to teaching. She is also a licensed Kindermusik educator, and enjoys sharing music with the young children and their families in her Kindermusik classes.
Jennifer currently lives in Grants Pass with her husband and three teens. When she's not playing the violin with her church worship team, she enjoys cozying up with some reading and coffee, cooking, baking, knitting, and spending time with her family.
Joe is an accomplished bass soloist who is well known to the Grants Pass music community. He studied music at Rio Hondo College in City of Commerce, California and continued his vocal studies privately for seven years with Joseph Klien and Dolores Davis. He began teaching voice lessons in 1987.
Joe has performed with the Los Angeles opera, at the Hollywood Bowl, in Europe, and at the Oregon State Capitol where he sang our national anthem. Locally he has performed as the bass soloist for the annual Josephine County Messiah Sing-along for the past 14 years.
Joe is an exceptional teacher. His teaching focuses on the "Bel Canto" style of singing using classical and Broadway music as repertoire. This approach provides a solid vocal foundation that is healthy for the voice and prepares the singer for performing any style of music. Students and parents alike express their appreciation for his professional but friendly and supportive teaching style.
In addition to singing Joe enjoys gardening and working on projects at home.
"Teaching singing is fulfilling for me. I feel that I am passing on what I have learned and therefore it is not lost. It is also gratifying to see my student's faces light up when they get it."
Lisa's love for music began at age five listening to her grandmother play violin for the San Francisco and Oakland symphony orchestras. She played piano as a child, and took up the guitar in her teen years. Lisa started out playing in a few "garage" bands, and then branched out playing guitar, keyboards, and singing backup vocals in various local bands performing for special events in her local community.
Currently, Lisa oversees a veteran's music program that she designed and coordinates through the Josephine County Veteran's Office. Veterans participate in rock bands with other veterans. Lisa serves as a mentor in these groups while participating herself on guitar, keyboards, and vocals and fostering camaraderie within the circle.
Lisa has recently begun taking piano and vocal lessons to further develop her own music knowledge and skills, and she is always looking for ways to support musicianship in our local community.
"I believe music enriches our experience as human beings and supports us on a mental, physical, and spiritual level. I enjoy inspiring and supporting youth in their quest to become musicians, fostering their growth while helping them develop their own style. My own love for music was instilled at a very early age, and I feel very fortunate to participate in the encouragement and guidance of young talent. My goal is to be an inspiration to my students and to instill in them a passion for the arts."

Knowing the power of music to bring out your child’s potential in every area of development, we treasure the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life as they discover their unique gifts and talents.
Nurturing Musicality. Let it begin with Kindermusik! Kindermusik classes guide your young child through each developmental level as they progress in their ability to keep a steady beat and sing in tune. Young children can actually increase musical “talent” through musical experiences beginning at birth — so these early years are critically important to your child’s musical future. For Kindermusik graduates we offer a piano class where loving teachers provide a solid foundation upon which your child will build their life-long musicianship and love for music.
Unlocking Potential. Over the last 20 years research has been flooding in about the amazing power of music making to promote learning and even to enhance the structure of the brain. Kindermusik activities are designed to foster your child’s cognitive, language, physical, creative, and social-emotional development. Beyond Kindermusik, taking music classes or lessons continues to offer the extraordinary benefits of making music.
Music is one of the great joys of life . . .Share it with your child!
Music4Kids is a special place.
